National Conference:CSOs to raise 10-member National Advisory Committee



AttahlatestThe National Working Committee,NWC coordinating the activities of CSOs toward the forthcoming National Conference has raised the need for a National Advisory Committee.
In his latest communication with CSO members Mohammed B. Attah said “We are also of the view that with the caliber of people the CSOs in Nigeria exhibits and considering the limited number of slots for the sector, there is a need to further select a team of experts from among outstanding achievers in the sector, to serve in the National Advisory Committee (NAC).

Attah who made the suggestion on behalf of the NWC said that “Essentially, we are proposing a ten (10) member or more among those that may not have been nominated for the National Conference. Their role will be to support the CSO delegates on the position of the civil society as regards significant issues for the Conference, and how best to ensure our collective position is enhanced.

“On the basis of the above, we humbly request your suggestion and nomination again to the CWC as a way to getting our collective voice heard during Conference. In nominating, may we also request that such individual should be person with track record on constitutional matter. Please contact us with your thought and nomination latest by Saturday 22 February, to assist us in planning and administration.

According to him , “The Central Working Committee will meet on Tuesday February 18th to review the submissions, suggestions and complaints received during the nomination exercise.”

Dear Colleagues and Members of the Nigeria CSOs,

As you are aware, CSOs from across the country are at the moment concluding meetings and consultations on the nomination of four (4) representatives from each zone of the country with a submission deadline of Friday February 14, 2014 by 5.00pm. By this, the names of all the nominees will be published in a special report for contributions before the final submission to the SGF.

The North Central with its peculiar challenges is yet to conclude nomination, and several actors have expressed concerns and willingness to spearhead the nomination process. The
Central Working Committee (CWC) has thus agreed to extend the deadline for the zone to Monday February 17, leaving three days to the submission. It is hoped that nominations will be concluded by this date.

We are also of the view that with the caliber of people the CSOs in Nigeria exhibits and considering the limited number of slots for the sector, there is a need to further select a
team of experts from among outstanding achievers in the sector, to serve in the National Advisory Committee (NAC).
Essentially, we are proposing a ten (10) member or more among those that may not have been nominated for the National Conference. Their role will be to support the CSO delegates on the position of the civil society as regards significant issues for the Conference, and how best to ensure our collective position is enhanced.

On the basis of the above, we humbly request your suggestion and nomination again to the CWC as a way to getting our collective voice heard during Conference. In nominating, may we also request that such individual should be person with track record on constitutional matter. Please contact us with your thought and nomination latest by Saturday 22 February, to assist us in planning and administration.

The Central Working Committee will meet on Tuesday February 18th to review the submissions, suggestions and complaints received during the nomination exercise.

We count on your unalloyed support

Mohammed B. Attah

Committee
